Hello there. First post on smok.

TL;DR: my neighbor pulled an old generator out of the barn and he's going to use it on a daily basis.

Can't date the thing, but should be from around the 60's. It's missing all the Identification plates. And the engine front cover.

I identified the engine as a Wisconsin BKN, based on the piston part number. But I have no idea of what the generator's brand/model is.

Does anyone know what this is?
Also: never seen a generator with a 'regulator rheostat'. What's it for?
